The greatest distinction of the VOX Continental’s interface is its revolutionary LED-equipped touch bars that shift function according to the situation.
・When you’re playing an ORGAN part, they function as touch drawbars that you can control directly with your fingertips.
・When you’re playing a KEY/LAYER part, they function as sliders that control parameters such as EG and filter.
・When the EQ is on, they function as a nine-band graphic master EQ.
These are electrostatic touch sensors that smoothly respond to a light touch of your fingertips; they provide the graphical operability of drawbars, together with the programmability that users expect from today’s technology.
Their concave shape facilitates smooth movement of your fingertips, and also allows you to sense intuitively how far the control has been raised or lowered, without requiring you to glance at the controller during performance. These are not the commonly-seen physical sliders, nor are they buttons; rather, these touch sensors are precisely matched to the player’s senses, delivering a revolutionary ease of use.
As an additional controller, a bend lever is also provided. You can use this to freely control the speed of the rotary speaker simulation, tremolo, or pitch bend.
